A very subtle way of understanding he took her in his bed.
Today, this film would have been considered very sexist, with the hidden message "you, woman, will end up badly if you don't follow your role in society, and your happiness lays under a strong man's arms protection. It would be considered as well as racist, "surely a good hearted Arab has European blood running in his veins"
Lovely film, though. I can see why so many women went to Valentino's funeral, and some even committed suicide.

It was interesting to see how the middle east was interpreted at that time. Loved it.

It's easy to see why this one broke box office records. I think it was the highest grossing film until Gone With The Wind, which was years later. Four Horsemen might have launched him into the spotlight but this movie cemented his fame the way that Cobra and Eagle proved why he deserved to be there. We belong to Valentino.

I get to see what the rage was all about during the 1920's with Rudolph Valentino. A movie well produced.
